Important Disease Transmission Reporting Clarification

Transplant professionals need to review the recently updated Notes section of the Pathogens of Special Interest document.

If one of your recipients tests positive for HCV after their transplant, and they received an organ from an HCV Ab positive/NAT negative donor, you must report this on UNet’s Improving Patient Safety portal as a Disease Transmission Event.

If you have any questions, please contact your regional administrator or email Cassandra Meekins or Tory Boffo.
